@ S(L)ick, I preferred the notion of 'Slick Bass' obviously for some reason :) A P45 sounds interesting, although more like a 'plane lol.. Considering that 1098R motor makes well over a 100lbs touque in standard mode, I'm surprised they can justify arguing along the lines trying to more highly tune the 1200, along the lines of a highly stressed 999motor. Their arguments are counter productive with their very reasoning beind SBK allowing the 1200block in first place...sounds very 'ferrari'ISH' viewpoint, v Italian 'we SHOULD make the rules.' 1000cc 4's probably pump out no more than 90lbs fully tuned, the twin maybe 110lbs/ft and more at loss of some hp but it's this grunt where it's all at, something motogp bikes have little of..relying on peak revs hp, momentum / manoeuvrabily a la 250..I can't understand their logic chasing high stress motors.. perhaps electronics play their part massively in 'governing' this. Think more likely it's cost and the fact Vale took the lot lol.
